The Senate supported a total of 38 organisers. Some of the companies operated several venues, so that the money benefits a total of 46 clubs, festivals and concert venues. Since 14 March, the clubs have been closed due to the Corona pandemic.
Clubs that benefit from the emergency program include About Blank, Cassiopeia, Sage, Tresor, Kater Club, Schwuz, Rummelsbucht and Lido. Berlin's Senator for Culture, Klaus Lederer (Left), had promised the city's cultural institutions further aid in the millions. Lederer had said that the 30 million euro emergency aid program launched in May would be extended by two three-month periods of the same amount, i.e., a total of 60 million euros.
